From the Mouths of Addicts: Addicts Anonymous…The Snow Monster


Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from a true Addict, Tapper pkkao.  It’s a humorous take on the Holiday Wheel and  the lengths one Tapper went just to clear that darn wheel!  Enjoy it my friends…I know I did!

A sadly true anecdote that I have to write.

It’s January 13, 10 PM. The Christmas update is about 8 hours away from ending, and my wheel looks cleared — except for the Snow Monster. Being the “freemium completest” (must have everything I can get without spending a penny), I could not live without the Snow Monster, even if I didn’t want that prize especially (ClausCo was the one I coveted the most).

 My spin token count is at a sad 0, and when I try to spin I get the dreaded message of “Out of Spin Tokens.” In 45 minutes, my Egg Nog Bar will produce a single spin token. All my hopes lied on that token to hit the improbable 5% chance of Snow Monster. Might as well wait an extra hour, right? It’s worth getting the snow monster, right? Continue reading

Are the odds now in your favor? Wheel update.

Hey howdy hey tapaholics!

If you haven’t noticed it yet, there was a minor in-game update today.  The big news is that the odds of the Holiday Wheel have changed.  Here’s the details.

Wheel Odds

I like pie charts.   Mmmmmmmm…. pie.  I think they show stats quite nicely.  Anywho, for people that like the raw data, here it is.

Snowmen Odds Up to 14% (previously 13.48%)
Christmas Skin Odds Down to 14% (previously 20.22%
Mr. Plow/Plow King Skins Up to 9% (previously 5.05%)
Ice God Up to 6% (previously 2.25%)
Helter Shelter Up to 5% (previously 2.25%)
Snow Monster Up to 5% (previously 1.68%)
Clausco Up to 5% (previously 1.56%)

Basically means that the odds for getting the better prizes is a little better but it still is a crap shoot whether you’ll hit that last prize you want.

The good news is that this is proof that EA has heard the uproar from many tappers and actually does care.  4 more days to go.  I sincerely hope the wheel spins your way.

You can replace fortune with FRUSTRATION, FORMULAS or according to others, some other “F” words if you like.

How’s every one doing?  Been strolling around the wide world of TSTO and recently I’ve noticed quite a few folks intensely focused on the Holiday Wheel that came with this year’s holiday update.  What at first seemed like such a cool concept has ended up being a hotly debated item.  There are folks who have become disillusioned, feel cheated, don’t care, want that last item that is taunting them.  Whatever the case, it is definitely one of those items you either love or hate it seems.

“Take it easy folks, it’s snow picnic out there.”

“I snow what you mean.”

Hey hidey ho friends!  Wookiee back with another WDTCF for your reading enjoyment.  This one is a two-fer because both character skins I’m gonna lay down come from the same episode, Season 4, Episode 9.  The episode is aptly titled Mr. Plow.

Where did THAT come from – Clausco

CLAUSCO… doesn’t that name just sound ominous? The building looks just as foreboding as that name makes me feel. Basically everything that’s wrong with corporate Christmas rolled into a manifestation in my favorite game lol.
